Intertek renews contract with The Government of Gabon for its Programme Gabonais d’ Evaluation de la Conformité (PROGEC) for exports to Gabon

October 02, 2020

Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, has extended its contract with the Agence Gabonaise de Normalisation (AGANOR)  to continue to support its Conformity Assessment Programme called PROGEC for exports to the country.

The programme verifies the conformity of all regulated products in the respective exporting countries applicable to all products imported into Gabon except for food and pharmaceuticals. This ensures they comply with the applicable Gabonaise technical regulations and quality standards, assuring Gabon's citizens of the quality and reliability of imported goods. Intertek has been supporting the programme since its commencement in 2015.

Thomas Kordick, Global Business Line Leader, Government and Trade Services, Intertek said: "We are delighted to continue to work with AGANOR in supporting them with the ongoing success of PROGEC, giving Gabon's consumers the assurance they need when buying imported goods and protecting them from sub-standard products. Having introduced the very first Conformity Assessment Programme in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia more than 20 years ago, Intertek has the experience and expertise to provide AGANOR, and exporters to Gabon with a rapid and excellent service."

Exporters to Gabon are required to provide a Certificate of Conformity for Customs clearance in accordance with Government regulation. This certificate can only be obtained from an Approved Inspection Body such as Intertek.

Intertek are the pioneers of Conformity Assessment Programmes having introduced the very first one over 20 years ago and with our network of more than 1,000 laboratories and offices and over 46,000 people in more than 100 countries, delivers innovative and bespoke Assurance, Testing, Inspection and Certification solutions for our customers' operations and supply chains.
